Scripal case — Look for those 'who benefit' The poisoning of Sergey Scripal, ex-officer of the Russian military intelligence, and his daughter Julia in Salisbury has become recently a “hot potato” in international information space. (JP/File)

The poisoning of Sergey Scripal, ex-officer of the Russian military intelligence, and his daughter Julia in Salisbury has become recently a “hot potato” in international information space. Just several days after it had happened, the British prime minister stated that Russia is “highly likely” behind the spy attack. She didn’t bother to provide any evidence or persuasive arguments to support this statement.

Let us look impartially at the facts but not guesswork and analyze independently what happened.
